Reached out on a pitch low and outside and just dropped it into LF behind the shortstop.

That's what you call manufacturing a run.

This team has been pretty damned good at that this year. It seems like we've already had more sac flies this season that all of last year.

Of course, we still can't seem to do anything with the bases loaded and less than 2 outs.

We didn't start getting real good at Sac flies until that blown game against the Sox. We had like 3 sac flies opportunities that game and didn't capitalize.

Hell, that's one area that KC has improved dramatically, was the stolen bases. They're tied (or probably leading) for 1st in the MLB in stolen bases.

Even that, as a team, their OBP% is .344, good for 6th in the MLB.

The primary reason the Royals were so good in the 80s is because of their aggresiveness and speed on the base paths.

Well, I think we're seeing a repeat of history here. Sometimes, it's not all about speed, but also picking the right timing, for instance, where a pitcher would (assuming) throw an off-speed pitch.

I don't think he'd ever come to KC and not because the Royals have been bad the last several years. It all has to do with being around his own kind of people and I'm guessing there isn't a very large japanese presence in KC. There is in Seattle.

Watching gamecast there were at least 4 pitches in the strike zone that were called balls, 3 to the same batter at one point. TM is worthless as an umpire and always has been imo.

The calls weren't really the problem. The 3-2 pitch from Soria could have been called a strike, but it was very borderline. We just couldn't throw strikes.

I'm just saying that at least 4 pitches were in the strike zone and called balls on gamecast. I can't watch the game so I obviously didn't see what those pitches actually looked like but they were in the gamecast strike zone.

Royals are tied for the third best record in baseball.

Also, I think that the Rockies officially clinched the NL West. A 4.5 game lead after 13 games? Holy shit.

Boston has half as many wins as the next worst team in baseball.

AL East is the worst division in baseball.

I still can't believe we didn't make the trade for Montero. I love Soria, but he's a closer who has had TJ surgery, and Montero is the #1 or 2 prospect in all of baseball.
